What more can be said about To Kalon that has not already been said? The To Kalon vineyard in Oakville is in one of the (if not THE) premier spots in the Napa Valley. It has a well-earned reputation for making wines that are powerful but somehow retain finesse. Wines that are rich and
intense but are drinkable in their youth, and also 10 years later. In short, wines like the 2012 To Kalon Cabernet. This is the best To Kalon Cabernet since 2006 in my opinion. It shows the loamy, earthy side of west Oakville, allied with sweet, rich black and red fruit, as well as licorice and burning embers. This has an absolutely uncanny ability to have intense richness but still be light and flowing on the palate. I don't think that there will be a 'bad' time to drink this vintage.
It is showing wonderfully now and should continue to do so for the next 10 years, at least.
